Birmingham City head into Wednesday’s game against Sheffield Wednesday at St.Andrew’s looking to build on an encouraging performance that was put in against Derby County on Saturday.

It was safe to say that Blues out did former manager Gary Rowett at his own game at the weekend and there were similar things that I noticed about Lee Carsley’s tactics that were similar to when the now Rams boss Rowett was in charge.

In his first game in charge of the club, Rowett oversaw a 0-0 draw with local rival Wolverhampton Wanderers and solidified things up for Blues, something which Carsley has also done, but he achieved a 1-1 draw rather than a stalemate.

Then Rowett had a midweek game to contest with, as Blues took on Watford, a game in which Clayton Donaldson scored a double to secure Rowett’s first win in charge of Blues.

Carsley now faces a midweek game against Wednesday and he will be hoping that the Blues fans can back the team into winning only their second league game of the new season.

With no new injury concerns heading into the game, here is my predicted line up, along with the substitutes bench…

GK: Kuszczak

RB: Nsue
CB: Morrison
CB: Dean
LB: Colin

CDM: Gardner
CDM: Ndoye

RAM: Maghoma
CAM: Vassell
LAM: Boga

ST: Jutkiewicz

Substitutes: Trueman, Grounds, Roberts, Kieftenbeld, Cotterill, Davis, Gallagher.

Blues fans, what do you make of the team that has been predicted for the game against Sheffield Wednesday? Do you agree that there might be two changes to the side? Let us know in the comment section down below!

  • The set up is similar to what worked so well for us over the GR term. I feel Ndoye may actually come good if he sticks to doing the basics and not trying to over play, having Gardner next to him will benefit him as he simply needs to win the ball and let CG do the passing. I think I’d start Vassell and Boga wide with Davies in the middle, otherwise I could see us being left with those 4 all wanting to attach, Davies at least will drop back into CM if needed. I think Vassell has done enough to earn more than a 20min cameo and Mags has not really had a great start considering the game time he has been given.
